Sir Mark Elder wins Recording of the Year for Elgar’s 'The Apostles'
Elgar’s ‘The Apostles’

The BBC Music Magazine Awards are voted for by readers of the magazine and website. This year the Awards attracted over 30,400 votes.  Conductor Sir Mark Elder  leads the winners of the Recording of the Year by the Hallé’s recording of Elgar’s oratorio. This recording presents the oratorio planned to open the trilogy, the lesser-known and under-served work The Apostles, retelling of Christ s Passion from the viewpoint of His followers features extensive and effective use of leitmotivs and choral writing that is arguably an advance on that of Gerontius, with the work s closing section depicting Christ s Ascension to heaven thought to be one of the most poignant ever written.
